A wedding is a celebration of starting a life together, so what better time to celebrate than in Spring? For an airy and fresh table setting, opt for a damask table runner and a clean, white table cloth. Potted plants are more natural than constructed arrangements, so juxtapose the natural and the polished with bouquets of white roses and potted greenery.
